Berkeley & LBL — Postdoc and Academic Researcher End of Year Party @ UAW Local 5810 Office
Dec 6 @ 5:30 pm

2018 has been an exciting year! We welcomed 5,000 new researchers into our Union, built our membership and successfully enforced our contract on a number of critical issues, and worked to elect pro-science and pro-worker candidates across the state. As 2018 winds down, we invite you to join us for a party to celebrate the holiday season and all of our wins this year.

The party will be an excellent opportunity for you to meet fellow Postdocs and Researchers from UCB and LBL, learn more about how to get involved in our Union, and begin to plan what we will accomplish together in 2020 contract negotiations.

Please RSVP here!

RSVPs are strongly encouraged! We will provide alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, along with some snacks, and everyone is welcome to bring something to share. The union office is a short walk from campus, close to the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Hope to see you there!
